    Re: qjoypad installation on breezy

    when you run it in a terminal leave a & on the end of the line and when you exit the terminal it will remain loaded:

    qjoypad &

    as for the startup it may be loading before the tray gets loaded depending on your WM

    This how-to worked for me on Edgy Eft with a Playstation Dual Shock controller and a generic convertor. Don't forget to install fakeroot and alien before starting. Thanks.

    Any idea how one might script something to get around this problem so you don't have to manually unplug and replug the device? I am using Logitech Rumblepad 2 and the analog axis' won't work until you replug the usb transceiver in.

    Re: qjoypad installation on breezy

    I'd like to try this one but I have a problem - my system is 64bit so I get:

    $ fakeroot alien qjoypad-3.4-1.i586.rpm

    if someone could upload the i386.deb file I could try a force-architecture...

    I also tried compiling from source. Otherwise ok, except

    $ qjoypad

    Re: qjoypad installation on breezy

    Okay it seems like everyone else can get this going, so I'm not sure why I'm having so much trouble.

    I followed all the instructions, seems to have gone okay. No where do I find anything to click on to start qjoypad...when I try to run it in terminal under sudo...I get the library error mentioned in the first post, then nothing else. No icons in the tray [I did that little trick], no window, nothing...ever.

    When i try to run from terminal::

    tommyboy@Tommy:~$ qjoypad
    qjoypad: error while loading shared libraries: libqt-mt.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    This sucks.

    Why is this so difficult? Do I have to install that library, and how would I go about doing that? Wasn't the point of converting the rpm to bypass the library error or am I understanding wrong?

    Question Re: qjoypad installation on breezy

    I've follow the instructions and everything is fine. Except that Qjoypad doesn't keep the configuration.

    Every time I add a layout it creates a new .lyt file in ~/.qjoypad3 but is always empty.
    In fact, the only text inside is:
    Code:
    # QJoyPad 3.4 Layout File
    Has anyone this problem?
